The Rules of Twitter

March 6, 2012 by thatsocialmediathing

Twitter is not like your Nan’s house – nobody is going to tell you ‘look but don’t touch’.

Sure, it’s worth kicking back and observing for a short while before you throw yourself in and start tweeting like your KPIs depend on it, but as a general rule, the Twitterverse is kind (most of the time!)

Amber Mac (@ambermac) at Fast Company shares her views on the 5 most important rules of Twitter here.

She covers:

  • how to RT yourself with humility
  • why timing is everything
  • right channel – right language
  • offense and how not to cause it
  • why silence is not golden in the Twitter-shere
